Program Description:

SIT Study Abroad Chile: Cultural Identity, Social Justice, and Community Development

 Explore Chile’s recent political and social history and how Chileans are reconciling with the past to create a more equitable and culturally inclusive society.

WHY STUDY SOCIAL JUSTICE IN CHILE?

Chile has undergone monumental political, economic, and social changes over the past four decades—including transitioning away from a 17-year dictatorship. Studying in Chile, you will explore how Chileans today are building a more equitable and inclusive nation and you will become part of a larger intercultural movement yourself. You’ll witness the struggle for justice and reconciliation related to the military regime’s human rights violations, and you will have the opportunity to complete an internship or conduct independent research.

During your excursions, you will spend two weeks with Mapuche and Aymara communities to understand the longstanding challenges Chile’s indigenous peoples face. In addition, you’ll work on a community project with an NGO and learn about the development strategies local communities are using to confront their unique challenges.

You will also receive intensive Spanish language instruction and develop the skills to discuss sociocultural issues through classroom learning, cultural immersion, homestays, and excursions.

Please visit the SIT Study Abroad website for details on the program highlights and details of coursework, educational excursions, and housing.
